Underage Possession of Alcohol

Virginia Beach is a commonplace for minors to receive tickets for underage possession of alcohol. Even if you are 20 years old, you could receive a ticket, fine and a mark on your permanent criminal record if you are convicted. At The Collins Law Firm, P.C., we fight to minimize these charges and the potential ramifications.

We believe that young people deserve second chances and we will aggressively work to keep an underage possession of alcohol charge off of your record.

One of our firm's partners, J. Kevin Collins, has practiced law in Virginia Beach since 1995. Our attorneys are familiar with the area and the local colleges, including:
